Bamsen78 (2958) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle @ ’t Poatersgat. Pours hazy light straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of fruit, flowers and yeast, with touches of malt. Sweetish, malty flavour, with pronounced acidic touches of fruit and flowers. Estery and hoppy notes towards the finish, which is rather rough and long-lasting. Okay.

mcberko (6000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
On tap at ’t Bruges Brutjes, pours a cloudy pale blonde with a large white head. Aroma is very floral and wheaty, very fresh smelling - nice and dry like a tripel should be. Flavour is very restrained, with lots of wheat, floral notes, and very light Belgian yeast. The ABV is certainly well-concealed. Almost tastes more like a wit than a tripel. Finishes dry and wheaty. All in all, a refreshing beer for a hot day that’s well-balanced, but fairly boring.

chiara velata blanche speziata coriandolo leggero astringente amaro medio troppo speziata per una tripel

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle in Bruges. Cloudy yellow. Fruit, dirt, citrus. Uninteresting, no reason for yet another Tripel that does not stand out.

oh6gdx (20238) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottled@HBF2014. Hazy grapefruit juicy colour with a small white head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, some earthy and alcoholic notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, spicy, earthy and some sweet malts along with mild alcohol as well. With the addition "so much corn" written with FatPhil’s handwriting. I didn’t actually find any corn in this though.

Tide (1674) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from a friend. Hazy yellow color, white head. Bitter taste with hops, citrus, ripe fruits, toast and grass. Bitter finish with hops, citrus, and ripe fruits. Decent tripel.

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 15, 2014
330ml bottle (HBF2014, Friday)
Gusher - lost a lot, hence 1 look. Very pale. Acetone sweetness in aroma. Rather mellow in teh mouth, soft light grains. Clearer glass was almost perfumey, would maybe be worth a 5. Soft breadiness everywhere, but again still acetone. Fairly pleasant hoppy finish given how messed up the start was.

jookos (1956) - FINLAND - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Gusher. Hard to say what this should be. Half poured was nicely golden, the rest like lemonade. In colour, that is. Spices, coriander. Not that bad. Somewhat wit-ish. Easy. Don’t mind this at all, just doesn’t feel like a tripel.
